The Autistic Brain-Part 1 and Vote for Next Month’s Book

In this month’s book club, we are reading The Autistic Brain: Thinking Across the Spectrum by Temple Grandin. I apologize for not specifying what page to read to, but in the future just divide the book by four and that will tell you approximately how many pages in a week. I am up to page 50 and the discussion question will concern what was discussed by Grandin in the first quarter of the book. So far I like the book but it is a little too scientific for my taste. Grandin talked a lot about her shortcomings in respects to her working memory and anxiety. She is fairly high functioning and obviously very intelligent.

The discussion question for this week is whether you think autism is over diagnosed in today’s society and the label of “Autistic” helps or hurts an individual?

Please post in the comment section. Remember if you comment each week I will put you in a drawing for a 25 dollar Amazon Gift Card. Don’t forget to vote below for next month’s book.
